The numbers pretty much speak for themselves. Anybody who tries to say that the Republican Party isn't the biggest if not sole thing standing in the way of nationwide marijuana legalization is denying reality.



If Democrats are wrong on guns, then Republicans are wrong on marijuana.

So the majority of Republicans think it should be legal.

What was your point again?

The lies that Democrats say... There are many Democrats that says that but will vote the opposite... They do it for the votes... If there is one certainty in life, it's that you can trust a Democrat...

I wish I could get it through your head: Public opinion and Republicans are NOT what is standing the way of legalization.

It is MONEY!!! Big-time, corrupt MONEY, which crosses all political lines.

Meanwhile in reality.....the facts just don't support your nonsense. Trying to rewrite this narrative this late is just beyond the pale.

Good for you! Quite a few constitutionalist Republicans have. As well as libertarians on the Republican side.

LOL. The democrat and Republican parties effectively switched parties. Your ignorance of this shows a ignorance of history. And this particular bit is sort of hilarious. Heres a brief history lesson thats ironic given current events:


How Did Marijuana Become Illegal in the First Place? | Drug Policy Alliance

The demonization of the cannabis plant was an extension of the demonization of the Mexican immigrants. In an effort to control and keep tabs on these new citizens, El Paso, TX borrowed a play from San Franciscos playbook, which had outlawed opium decades earlier in an effort to control Chinese immigrants. The idea was to have an excuse to search, detain and deport Mexican immigrants.
That excuse became marijuana.
